Moretsu Pirates OP/ED released (Momoiro Clover Z)
March 7, 2012
The Mouretsu Pirates (AKA Fierce Pirates AKA Bodacious Space Pirates) OP/ED single was released today. Both tracks are performed by Momoiro Clover Z, an idol band with a sentai theme (think Power Rangers). You can see in the image above that each member is associated a color. I took to the ED (Lost Child) right away, but the OP (Mouretsu Uchuu Koukyokyoku) — “Furious Space Symphony’) also quickly grew on me. I don’t have too much to say, but I’ll link you to the vids.
OP – Mouretsu Uchuu Koukyokyoku
A couple of things I love about this song. First the lyrics seem to be barely controlled which I think adds to the frenetic (one might say furious — mouretsu) intensity. I also like the change in time signature. The animation in the anime version is also great, so I always watch this when the show comes on.
ED – Lost Child
This has a much different feel, less Rock, more Electronica. There is no official music video for Lost Child, so I’m embedding the anime ED.
Bonus Service – The Legend of Z
Just in case the Mouretsu Pirates didn’t satisfy your need for Momoiro Clover Z, this ought to cure you right quick.
